La Cicer Wind Statistics, Summer averages since 2006

This image illustrates how commonly and how strongly the wind blows from different directions over a normal northern hemisphere summer. The largest spokes point in the directions the wind most commonly blows from and the shade of blue suggests the strength, with the darkest shade of blue showing the strongest winds. It is based on 8738 NWW3 forecasts of wind since since 2006, at 3hr intervals, for the closest NWW3 model node to La Cicer, located 41 km away (25 miles). There are not enough recording stations world wide to use actual wind data. No doubt some coastal places have very localized wind effects that would not be predicted by NWW3.

According to the model, the prevailing wind at La Cicer blows from the N. If the rose plot shows a nearly round shape, it means there is no strong bias in wind direction at La Cicer. Converseley, dominant spokes show favoured directions, and the more dark blue, the stronger the wind. Spokes point in the direction the wind blows from. During a typical northern hemisphere summer, the model suggests that winds are light enough for the sea to be glassy (light blue) about 0.9% of the time (1 days each northern hemisphere summer) and blows offshore just 10% of the time (5 days in an average northern hemisphere summer). Over an average northern hemisphere summer winds exceeding >40kph (25mph) are not expected, but 16 have winds on the range 30-40 (19-25) at La Cicer

IMPORTANT: Beta version feature! Swell heights are open water values from NWW3. There is no attempt to model near-shore effects. Coastal wave heights will generally be less, especially if the break does not have unobstructed exposure to the open ocean.
